Las Vegas Country Club, Las Vegas, USA

A fantastic final round for Graeme posting a 5 under par to finish in 5th place. This was his best finish on the LIV circuit and on the final round all the hard work came together. He carded 5 birdies with no dropped shots to be pushing for the lead at the end. Not only was it an amazing week for Graeme, his team SMASH GC came home winners in the team event. Koepka (Captain), Gooch, Kokrak & McDowell had a combined total of -33, a massive seven shots ahead of the 2nd place ACES GC.

Graeme scored a level-par 70 in round two at Las Vegas Country Club to fall seven back of the fast pace set by Dustin Johnson and Bryson DeChambeau. It was a case of one step forward, one step back for the Portrush man who fired three birdies but mixed in three bogeys as well, falling back from tied seventh to tied 26th as several players went low around the desert layout.

Graeme McDowell posted his best opening score since LIV’s arrival to sit just three off the lead in a share of seventh place after day one at Las Vegas County Club. Starting on the sixth hole in the shotgun start format, the Portrush man opened his birdie account with a three on the par-4 seventh, then added two more back-to-back on 12 and 13 before a bogey at 14, his only dropped shot of the day, momentarily halted the charge. He’d respond in ideal fashion with birdie at the par-5 15th, covering his opening nine in three-under. Another birdie at the first took him to -4 for the day, and he’d par his way to the par-3 fifth – his 18th – where a pinpoint iron shot left him a short birdie putt, only to see the four-footer slide by, ending an otherwise excellent opening effort on a rather sour note.


LIV Golf is about to take over a true Las Vegas institution, where the rich and famous have been sinking putts and cutting deals since 1967.

The Las Vegas Country club has hosted multiple pro tournaments, including the Las Vegas Invitational won by our own commissioner Greg Norman. The clubhouse, meanwhile, has provided sanctuary to Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and Joe DiMaggio.

This venue once witnessed a classic ‘what happens in Vegas’ tale, when an FBI plane landed in a water hazard. Now, it’s time for another incredible story.
